26 June Copley 265-
Part 2 of the weekend saw unbeaten Triangle come to town in the Parish Cup Quarter finals. A large crowd gathered to watch two of the most successful sides in the history of the league go head to head in what was easily the tie of the round.
Batting 1st CCC were firmly up against it at 86-
It gave CCC something to defend and they did this is nail biting finish in a match that went all the way down to the last over. The CCC boys held their nerve, and came up with some tight bowling at the end that saw the team home, and in the process ending Triangle's unbeaten record.
25 June Copley 321-
The visit of Warley to the Arches saw two old rivals go head to head in the top division once more and the start of a double headed weekend with the visit of Triangle to come the following day in the cup. A good reminder to the club what it truly meant to be back in the top flight and a return to the battles of days gone by.
CCC were up for the game and this showed as they destroyed the Warley attack. Dennison started things rolling with 53 at the top of the order. Then Whittaker and Dalby carried on in style. Whittaker (93) and Dalby (123 no) saw CCC finish on an impressive 321-
Warley were never going to trouble the score and ended on 240-
18 June Blackley 221-
Old habits came to haunt CCC as they travelled to Blackley. Having the home side on 99-
But Copley had learned from the Traingle game earlier in the season and soon regained the momentum after the break with Skinner frustrating the Blackley bowlers with 63. The game was never in doubt and Dalby (69no) and Thorpe Jnr (48no) saw CCC comfortably home for a very solid win.
11 June Old Crossleyans 213-
Derby day came to CCC when old foes Crocs came to town. In search of their 1st league win of the season Crocs posted a confident 213-
In reply CCC were rarely in trouble and comfortably knocked off the score with the loss of 5 wkts, Whittaker (69) and Baldwin capping off a fine individual performance with 57 no.
5 June Mytholmroyd 216-
CCC faced a tricky test away at Mytholmroyd in the cup. Royd batted 1st and posted a strong 226-
But the slight concerns were soon banished as Seraj and Skinner set out to knock the score off on their own. In what can only be described as a stunning opening stand they punished everything Royd had to offer in an incredible opening stand of 217. It was a stand that was eventually broken when Seraj departed on 91. Skinner, however, completed his maiden CCC ton seeing the team home with an unbeaten 120.
4 June Triangle 252-
CCC's fruitful bank holiday weekend seemed a distant memory after a case of what could have been on the visit to Triangle. CCC started well having the league leaders reeling on 118-
Being on the end of that blast, CCC never recovered. In reply CCC lost wkts at vital stages throughout their innings and they never really challenged Triangle's total. Finishing on a disappointing 179 all out with Dalby (39) and Whittaker (31).
30 May Sowerby Bridge 180-
CCC put back to back wins together over the bank holiday weekend with a good victory over Bridge. In a rain affected game Bridge were put into bat and posted a solid 180-
In reply things didn’t get off to the best possible starts with CCC being on 18-
28 May Copley 188-
CCC got back to winning ways over Mytholmroyd at home. Things weren't easy for the Copley boys when batting 1st CCC found themselves at 63-
Royd were never really in the game finding themselves struggling on 30-
The 1st XI winning run came to an end on a blustery day in Bradford. After losing the toss and being put into bat on a green wkt, CCC again failed to gain the initiative early in their innings. Seraj departed first for 2 after edging to the keeper. Things weren't helped further when Skinner had to retire hurt early in his innings damaging his foot whilst leaving a ball. Dalby and Whittaker worked well together in building the innings, putting on a decent partnership and lifting CCC to 73-
The second innings started with Sunday XI skipper Chris Hammond stepping into the team to field in place of the injured Skinner who headed off to casualty to get his foot looked at (after his tea!). Jer Lane came out with a game plan that looked to attack the CCC bowling early and they put away any lose balls reaching 30 without loss after only 5 overs. Turner worked hard bowling uphill into a strong wind and his efforts were soon rewarded removing the middle stump of the Jer Lane opener. Thorpe Jnr came into the attack and picked up a wkt and Jer Lane were 48-
Week 3 saw CCC continue their winning run in another close encounter, this time against early league leaders Bradshaw.
After winning the toss, and on a lively green wkt, Seraj stuck the visitors into bat. Turner showed his worth with a master class spell that ultimately saw him bowl an uninterrupted 23 overs into the wind. The game started brightly for CCC with the visitors finding themselves at 33-
Things didn't start brightly for CCC and Bradshaw came out with all guns blazing. CCC were left rocking and were well and truly staring down the barrel, losing 5 wkts for only 30 runs. Out of the 5 wkts to go, only Seraj made double figures with 23. This saw the arrival to the crease of no 7 batsmen, 15 yr old Oliver Thorpe. With 10 points for the taking, Bradshaw were looking to wrap things up quickly in what would have been an emphatic win. However, for the 2nd time this season Oliver produced another excellent batting display and again showed what a true talent he really is. He battled through with Peter Hoyle putting on a 83 run partnership before Hoyle fell for an gutsy 37. Thorpe led the way though and continued with some glorious shots leading the team over the finish line with one over to spare, and finishing with an unbeaten 59.
